Sustained Network Performance

The Mellanox® M3601Q from Dell™ supports static routing to reduce or eliminate network congestion. For conditions in which output ports are oversubscribed, the M3601Q supports InfiniBand® Trade Association (IBTA) 1.2 congestion control mechanisms. The switch system works together with the ConnectX® I/O host channel adapter (HCA) to restrict the traffic causing congestion and ensure high bandwidth and low latency to all other flows. Whether used for parallel computation or as a converged fabric, the combination of high bandwidth, adaptive or static routing, and congestion control provides excellent traffic-carrying capacity.

Easy to Manage

The M3601Q is easily managed through any IBTA-compliant subnet manager. Mellanox recommends installing and running the OpenFabrics software stack on each server blade. Any server can then run the subnet manager, along with switch management tools. Port configuration and data paths can be set up automatically, or customized to meet the needs of the application. And you can update firmware in-band, for simple network maintenance.
